Nighttime {NOTES}

To my boys:

Chandler {CHANCE} you’re becoming more and more like your father everyday! Almost a mini me. A couple of weeks ago, you did something (I cannot remember what), but I told you to stop, you tried to reason with me & before I could even respond, you mimicked me & said exactly what I was about to say . . . I laughed so hard! Your father does that to me all the time, he always knows what I am going to say after his silly comments.ChanandMars-Morning-Snack

Unfortunately, you’ve been “acting out” a lot lately. We know why. Every time you get an ear infection you behavior is terrible. You went to the ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat specialist) yesterday for a consolation to get tube placed back into your ears. You had your first tube placement surgery when you were 2 years old. They fell out when you were about 3, then 6 months later your horrible ear infections started back up. You had about 6 ear infections in 2014, one that lasted for 3 months and turned into a scary middle ear infection. This time you are getting tubes placed & an adenoidectomy. Your surgery is scheduled for late this month & I’m going to be a nervous wreck, but I’ll be strong for you. I do not want you to be scared at all!

Marshall {MARSUPIAL} you started walking! I’m trying to savor every last bit of your babyhood, since you’re now a twoddler. It’s so surreal to “walk” around the house with you . . . it seems like you’ve been a baby forever & this is your transition into a toddler. It makes me a little weepy eyed, but at the same time I’m ready for you to gain your independence. You have quite the personality & your very loud! It seems that you try to “scream” over your brother when he is talking. You point, mainly at food that you want. You eat, like, a lot!! You’re constantly eating, but you don’t like milk, we’ve tried every which way to give it to you and you just flat out don’t like it. Your favorite food is definitely scrambled eggs, you are your brother can share and eat 7 eggs in one sitting! We introduced you to the potty about 2 weeks ago & you’ve used it at least 6 times since then. Today, you went into the bathroom and started pulling on your clothes, to tell me that you wanted to use your potty. I know, it seems crazy . . . you’re only 13 months, but we introduced your brother at this age & he was potty-trained at 2 years and 4 months old. So, we’re doing it again, with you!

Unfortunately, you’ve been sick too! For the past 7 days you’ve had an ear infection. I was just started to think that the antibiotics were not curing you, you were still so clingy & crabby, but then I felt that you had some teeth coming through your gums. Double whammy! You’re so sleepy & barely eating. The other night you went to bed at 4:00 PM & didn’t wake up till 6:00 AM . . . that’s so unlike you. It’s been a rough couple of weeks around here. The new norm is that Daddy or I have to carry you around every moment that you’re awake. My wrist hurts & my arms are tired, but I’ll carry you till you are well baby.

Sleep tight little ones!


Your Mommy ❤
